Top Review by Sydney Mike

Never thought very seriously before about making salmon cakes, but with the Dijon mustard, lime & pistachios, this recipe was appealing! Made as given, these were very tasty & make for a nice change of pace for the usual salmon that we have! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
